Kerbal Space Program players are endlessly impressive people. Not satisfied with creating programmable lunar buggies, making their own multiplayer, and, frankly, designing a ludicrous number of excellent mods, they’ve now gone and made Mechwarrior inside Squad’s space simulator.

See it in action in this Mechwarrior-scored trailer:
Rather than a single mod, creator Allmhuran’s used a whole toolbox of player-made upgrades: BD Armory, Infernal Robotics, Camera Tools, Tweakscale, Steam Guages, KOS, and UbioZor Part Welding. With those he’s managed to build dropships, tanks, a Timberwolf, destructible buildings, a mech UI.
Allmhuran says that the mech took about 20 hours to build but that wasn’t the real challenge: it took him two weeks to make it walk.
Hopefully, Allmhuran’s going to make a slew more mechs in the future. I’ve my fingers crossed for a Bushwhacker or an Atlas.
Unfortunately, so far, Allmhuran’s keeping his mech designs to himself but he’s at least proved what’s possible with a little determination.
